F Puerto Rico Insolvent There has not been much in the news about it, but Puerto Rico is insolvent. Its'debt has nearly tripled from 2000 to 2012, from $24 billion to $70 billion, according to the Center for a New Economy in Puerto Rico. How do political entities become insolvent? We can blame irresponsible political leaders, but voters who vote for politicians who promise more spending programs than their taxpayers can afford are also at fault. If voters are willing to vote for leaders who promise more and more spending, there will always be someone who steps up to make the promises needed to get elected. USA Today reports that Puerto Rico wants Congress to pass legislation allowing it to file for bankruptcy which it cannot do under present law. Does this situa- tion affect the rest of us? Yes, it is estimated that many mutual funds have invested in Puerto Rican bonds. Also, Puerto Rico’s problems will make it harder and more expensive for our states and local governments to bor- row money, even if they are doing it responsibly. I un- derstand that many Puerto Ricans are now leaving the island to come to the US. because of the bad economic conditions there. In fact, apparently there are more Puerto Ricans in the US. than in Puerto Rico. I wonder if.those who manage to become US. citizens will vote for the same politicians and policies that have caused the problems they are fleeing from. We have seen the nation of Greece in a similar situa- tion last spring and summer. Several American cities have also become insolvent. Will we learn anything from these examples? I don’t know. The federal government continues to run up its debt. Too many people seem to think our trillions of dollars of debt is nothing to be concerned about. Some states and local governments continue to overspend. The only real solution is for the voters to reject candidates who promise irresponsible spending even though such spending may be tempting in the short run. I would like to think that we are getting to the point when vot- ers will demand that their leaders act responsibly.

DOYLE Kevin-J..Doyle, 64, Cumming, died Sunday, Nov. 29, at Taylor House Hospice in Des Moines af— ter an eight-year battle with cancer (which per- fectly reflected his fierce- ly competitive nature). A Mass of Christian Burial was held Saturday, Dec. 5, at St. John the Apostle Catholic Church in Norwalk. To share a memory, Vis- it www.01earyfunerals .com or call 515-981-0700. Kevin John, the son of William E. and Mary Lu- cille (Johnson) Doyle, was born January 2, 1951 in Minneapolis, MN. He grew up in the Twin Cit- ies, graduating from DeLaSalle High School in 1969 and the College of St. Thomas in 1973 with a double major in Biology and Chemistry. Incredibly driven, Kevin found his true calling in sales, mov— ing to Iowa to accept a po- sition with Reynolds 8: Reynolds in 1973. His hall- mark as a salesman was a strong ability to build warm, lasting relation-. ships with 0 customers, which was reflected in multiple sales awards and consistently high num- bers. In 1980, Kevin founded Combined Systems Tech- nology, Inc., an innovative computer brokerage firm. The culture of CST reflect- ed Kevin’s career-long commitment to exception- al customer service and the value he placed on strong interpersonal relation- ships with clients, col- leagues and contacts. In the early 905, Kevin went on to found Consumer Safety Technology, Inc., one of the first companies in the country to develop and market a fuel-cell al- cohol ignition interlock device (the "Intoxalock," which Kevin jokingly re- ferred to as a "blow and go” device). With both CST I and II, Kevin empha- sized the use of Iowa- based research, develop- ment and resources and Kevin J. Doyle was proud of his compa- nies’ strong identification with the state. Kevin met his wife, Marge, while in college in 1970, and they were mar— ried in 1975. As the book- keeper and office manag- er for his companies, she was integral to the success of both CST I and CST II. In 1977, their first son, Glenn, was born, followed by a second son, Kyle, in 1983. Glenn is a clinical psychologist and director of The Doyle. Practice, a private psychotherapy practice With offices; "in Chicago and Washington, DC, and Kyle is a freelance sales and marketing con- sultant in Des Moines. Kevin’s passions and hobbies included hunting, hunter education and safe— ty, dog. training, fishing, metal detecting, traveling, geocaching, and growing award-Winning tomatoes. Among intimates, he was known as incredibly artic- ulate, intelligent, persua- sive and charismatic, and for the value he placed on strong relationships and calculated risk-taking. He was known for driving his silver Mustang with "CST II” license plates, and, in the last several years, for his trademark fedora— one of the many hats he wore throughout his life. Kevin is survived by his wife; his sons; his brother, Bill (Deb) of Neenah, WI; his daughter-in-law, Britt— any; his granddaughter, Elizabeth, and his beloved grand-dog, Gunner. SUBSCRIBE TODAY!
